PPPoE or Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet, is used mainlly by telephone companies like AT&T and usually requires authenticating with a userid and password to establish a high-speed connection. Kind of like dialp-up used to be.

Comcast, (also my ISP) is not PPPoE, so you would select Cable.

Curious ... what do you expect this snake oil System Mechanic to do for you? If your computer is working fine, don't create problem for yourself.
